Join the 2022 30x30 Challenge!

Penn's campus' spring blooms

It’s time for all of us to get outside! 

Sign up for Penn’s 30x30 Challenge and get outdoors for at least 30 minutes per day in April.

Did you know that Americans spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, according to the EPA? Over the last decade, researchers have been documenting what many of us know intuitively- that nature is good for our health and well-being. Regularly immersing yourself in a natural setting-like a park, forest, or field- can reduce stress while boosting immunity, energy levels, and creativity.  The 30x30 Challenge is an effort to encourage the Penn community to get outside, learn about local ecology, and appreciate the beauty of nature.

  • Enjoy fresh air, sunshine, or exercise
  • Motivate your coworkers to get outdoors
  • Explore Penn's Nature Rx Program to learn about the benefits of getting outdoors
  • Take part in fun and educational activities around campus, such as a tour with Penn’s Landscape Architect, and special Earth Day events, among others.
